No worries, Clem..we'll just agree to disagree.

That 5/7/77 half step is easily my 2nd favorite, but (and I doubt i'll be able to describe this correctly) the reason I think 11/6/77 is better has to do with the build-up/splash down of both major musical bridges, which come down so hard and definitively after the great runs by Jerry that it just seems to me the most powerful of all the Half Steps out there.

Also, Jerry nails all the lyrics. Ultimately, they're both great versions, with the unifying point being that 1977 RULES!
